yvette johnson may have been born in greenwood, mississippi, but when she returned to research her grandfather's life, she came as a stranger. >> we visited once when i was eight. i came back once when i was 11. it just seemed small, far away, maybe a little outdated, backwards. >> tell me about this house. >> for ray de felitta, this was his first trip to mississippi. and like yvette, it was the unfinished story of booker wright that lured him here. following in his father's footsteps. >> ray, what was it like for you to suddenly find yourself in these same towns, in the same streets. >> it was great to actually envision my dad in 1965 there and i'm actually sitting in the same restaurant, i'm wandering with a film crew in the same town. >> before long, ray and his crew were bumping into people who'd actually appeared in his father's film.
